I Met An Angel Today

Jan 14 2006

Saturday usually finds me going through my archives and re-arranging things. I found this little poem that someone had once written for me. Sometimes things don’t turn out the way you want them to be, but later when the future unfolds, you sit back and think that everything happens for a reason. Or like Edward Fitzgerald interprets Omar Khayyam:
‘Tis all a chequer board of nights and days,
Where destiny with men for pieces plays;
Hither and thither, and mates, and slays.

Anyways, here’s the poem from Shikha a love for life, a dear friend, someone who I can’t explain in a song.

I met an angel today
Each moment of my lived life
I dreamt of him in my eyes
Open or close, he was always behind the doors
I wish I could peep behind the veil & have his gentle feel
All day merry & gay I would tell everyone, I met an angel today

Each moment passed by in a hope & a sigh
Where is he, here or there, I couldn’t see
Is he my dream’s narration or really a god’s creation?
Has god made one like that who’ll come & take me back?
All day merry & gay I would tell everyone, I met an angel today

I dreamt under the sky – of a place like paradise
Everywhere the fragrance so sweet that proved the love was so deep
Morning, noon or night he wouldn’t escape my sight
My SELF melts away when I see him a hand’s distance away
All day merry & gay I would tell everyone, I met an angel today

While dwelling all alone in my heart’s little home
I wait for him endlessly & spread my love’s symphony
With a hope that he passes by and on hearing my ceaseless cry
Steps in and makes me feel the much awaited zeal
All day merry & gay I would tell everyone, I met an angel today

I tread my way hopefully & to my surprise what I see
Here’s someone who’s just like ‘HIM’ & fulfills all my whims
I look at him with trembling eyes – with a fear he’d soon disappear
He smirks & my soul jerks, YES! He’s the one who’s my GOD!
With this thought my whole being applauds
All day merry & gay I would tell everyone, I met an angel today

I take a leap forward to have a closer glance
Alas! My eyes sparkle with tears & soul tempts to dance
I met my beloved under the blue sky
I wish I could fly
All day merry & gay I would tell everyone, I met an angel today

I saw the spectrum sing, the nature clapping with zing
He’s here! He’s here! I dance in the spring
I look at him with breathless eyes; he smiles away in surprise
My fantasy turns true; I come out of the blue
All day merry & gay I would tell everyone, I met an angel today

Soon there came a dark cloud that wiped the day off
I got up with a gasp & found him gone off
With shaking voice I cried his name, but I had lost him in the game
I looked out in search of him, found all his shadows had dimmed
My heart went down & nerves clinched
In that hour as if the whole world slinked
What a catastrophe had grasped me, I couldn’t do anything except sit back & think
I yearn to see him again though I go through this terrible pain
All day sad with dismay, I couldn’t tell anyone I lost an angel today.
